From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA, conducted by FRANK CANTELL
MENDELSSOHN several times put into his music the impressions that scenes of nature made upon his mind. His popular Hebrides Overture, for example, was the result of his visit to the wild, rugged scenery of the Scottish islands.
In Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage we have his interpretation of another's thoughts about the ocean, as well as of his own impressions. His chief inspiration was a poom of Goethe, which depicts the sea in two moods, first, sleeping, smooth as a mirror, and then stirred by a favouring breeze, before which the ship flies homeward.
There are two separate Movements in it, a slow one, suggesting the Calm at Sea, and a lively one, inspired by the second part of Goethe's poem, The Breeze.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.
